Hmmm, seems like just a bit of bad luck and a slip of the tongue for that lady really. This is the type of politically incorrect joke that you say to
family and friends, a "naughty" joke that you only laugh at because it's so wrong, not something to be said on national TV.
I've been meaning to start a BTS thread about "How far is too far?" with politically incorrect jokes. This, in my opinion, is a really mildly
offensive joke, but the fact that it was said on air makes it 100 times worse. (I'm sure Obama, his family and supporters would disagree on just how
offensive the joke is though)
I've heard worse on television before, much much much more offensive and politically incorrect, but it was in shows that are known for that, like
South Park, Drawn Together, Weeds, and to a lesser extent, The Simpsons, but not on a news station.
